If you like true BBQ don’t waste your time here. Had a knock off “ blooming onion” that had zero seasoning in the batter..terrible. Ordered the Big combo with 2 side and a roll. Mac-n-cheese was pretty good, roll was burnt and crispy, baked beans...were more like mushed beans, and then on to the meats. Ribs not really as tender as you would expect, pulled pork with zero seasoning and very dry. The biggest disappointment was the brisket, obviously chopped and set to serve all day, It was so dry, and had zero fat to even mix it a bit. Slice it , chop it, from the block. For a BBQ joint in business since 1967 I would have expected more FLAVOR. My Weber is much better!!!More

Our family loves BBQ and the Pink Pig didn’t not disappoint!! Warm, friendly atmosphere and staff were super sweet! Between our party of 4 adults and 1 child I think we ate a good portion of the menu- ribs, brisket, pulled pork, hamburger, chicken! All...were cooked perfectly and our family had a great experience!More

Had a Brisket sandwich and a Pulled Pork sandwich, plus a side of fried okra and coleslaw and chips. All Delicious! Rustic and kitschy interior. Great value, 2 sandwiches, 2 sides, and 2 bags of chips for 24 bucks. Would recommend, and will be returning...for more.More

We heard the Pink Pig was somewhere worth trying. I must say, it is definitely not just worth trying, it should be considered a must DO. From the time we walked in and saw the little shop with all the decor, and greeted by several...folks, until we paid on the way out, all the staff was incredible. Tim, who was our waiter, recommended a few items, one being the oink onion which was incredible (Outback's blooming onion has some catching up to do) and you really need to bless your taste buds with that. There menu is packed full of a variety of food to satisfy anyone, even the kids. My Wife and I shared the chicken combo plate. The half chicken was cooked perfect with great flavor and the barbecue ribs were excellent. Also, the we got the Quesadilla which is a must have as well and it heats up great the next day and still has incredible flavor with the onions and peppers on it. Just an overall excellent experience and will go back while we are here.More

We made our first trip to Georgia as a family and this was listed as a must visit place- reviews were right! Great BBQ pork and brisket. The peanut butter pie was one of the best I've had. Will definitely be back!

Staying by the restaurant we tried it on a Sunday night and they were out of most meats beside chicken (due to an influx of Floridians on spring break). It was still very good - sides were delicious and Tim who waited on us was...very friendly. Went back later in the week and had a delicious meal. Tim and owner recognized us like we were friends. Very good experience both times... thought food was yummy and would definitely return!More
